On Fri­day, Dec. 20, 4th-through 8th- grade stu­dents from Montes­sori School of Cov­ing­ton fo­cused on what they could do for oth­ers rather than what they could re­ceive. Stu­dents held a food, cloth­ing and used toy drive dur­ing De­cem­ber at the school, and on Fri­day took hun­dreds of do­nated food items to Will­ing Helpers Food Pantry.

Jack Van­derzwart, who runs the pantry, taught the stu­dents how the pantry op­er­ates, who do­nates their time and re­sources to the pantry and how the pantry helps those strug­gling to get back on their feet. The stu­dents spent the next few hours sort­ing cans and boxes of do­nated foods in prepa­ra­tion for them be­ing shelved for fam­i­lies who would later come in to “shop.”
